> Rules

Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

Hey mate, this take is very good and my only suggestion revolves around the bends - they are not as strong as they should be, so please make sure that you play them with a full intention of doing so and also reaching the correct pitch when bending.

Keep rocking,

Something weird going on about 0:22. You did most of what should be done with this lesson. Now it's time to dig more into it and feel the power of the blues. Bleuse is a very emotional playing. Try to feel the flow and do more relaxed take with a bit of more agression from the right hand and it would be great! smile.gif You could also make a guitar a bit louder comparing the the backing track. Good job!

Hi mate! Congrats on your first REC take!! I'm proud of finding one of my old lessons. biggrin.gif
Cosmin and Darius already said the things that should be fixed on this take, but let me say that it's a good one. Just concentrate on Bending and a bit of timing and you will have a 10! wink.gif
